What do we learn about the traditional genre of painting and the role of digitization when we look at both through the contemporary practice of post-digital painting? The international symposium, organized by Prof. Dr. Nina Gerlach and Dr. Simon Vagts, Kunstakademie Münster, sheds light on the history, developments and potentials of post-digital painting. Historical predecessors and reference points play a role here, as do the significance and developments from the so-called “digital revolution” to the present day.

The contents of the symposium will subsequently be published in a scientific publication.
